Science World at TELUS World of Science

Today's Programming and Events


Steve Axford is an Australian photographer who specialises in nature photography. Spiders are little beasties that are always around, no matter where you are, so they are ideal subjects for nature photographers. Steve now lives in sub-tropical Australia, away from the city, where there are lots of animals, but when he lived in central Melbourne there were almost as many spiders. Baby spiders travel on the wind, so they are always there. You just have to look.

Microbes Art Us

This exhibition is an extension of the art show entitled "Cave Microorganisms and Drug Discovery: A Collaboration Between TRU Microbiology Researchers and Artists" that was exhibited at the Kamloops Art Gallery and the TRU Art Gallery in 2014. This exhibition aims to engage the public in the excitement of the exploration of cave microorganisms, their identification and potential for new drug development, while developing new perspectives in the popular and scientific view of microorganisms through art.

Nikon Small World

Science World is pleased to showcase the winners of the 40th annual Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition, including first prize winner Rogelio Moreno's photo, capturing a rarely seen image of a rotifer’s open mouth interior and heart-shaped corona.

Origami whales

Be inspired and amazed by these handcrafted creatures, created by origami artist Joseph Wu. Representing the real and the fantastic, these delicate whale sculptures will spark your imagination and appreciation for the ancient art of origami. We're presenting this exhibition in celebration of our new OMNIMAX film, Humpback Whales.
